I discovered Argentine tango my first week as a freshmen at Portland State University in September of 2010. The first couple of times at the beginner’s practica were full of new challenges and warm friendly people, which hooked me instantly. Finally, I felt like I had found something that would allow me to push myself without having to compete against others. Of course, I would find this to not be a fully truthful statement, but in the beginning I was blinded by the creation of this dance that would create an endless insatiable appetite for more.
Tango has been one of the most prominent passions in my life, and I am a hundred-ten percent certain that it will stay that way the rest of my life.
